Van Persie: "I'm proud of being captain"


Robin Van Persie is one of the most important players in Wenger's squad. And since Fabregas' departure, the dutchman has been using the armband in great style.


"Of course I'm proud of being captain. Arsenal is a big club and many idols has used this armband. But I don't think it changed me a lot in the way I am because I believe you should always stay the same," Van Persie said. 

"Actually, good behaviour starts from yourself. If you expect that from other people, you should start by yourself and be helpful to everyone else. That's the role of a leader" he concluded.
